I've though about this too, but in the end, I have to disagree.
The world needs a good, quality, pure analog (TUBE!!) preamp in pedal form with MIDI control. (Make an Ibanez Tube King or AMT SS-20 programmable and MIDI switchable. That would be PERFECT.) I don't know that Eventide is the right fit for such a product. Feel free to prove me wrong, Eventide.
My plan is to get a MIDI controlled true bypass looper and use it entirely for distortions, compressors and EQs. Not as compact or elegant, but it is a no-compromise solution.
